democratic primary over a guy named jim shannon. then came the biggest break of all, on the same today voters turned on elliot richardson. he was one of the few heroes of watergate. but the republicans dumped him in their primary in favor of a right wing businessman. only then was john kerry's path to the senate and all the prominence and all the opportunities that senate seat has afforded him, only then was that clear. in politics we tend to ridicule losers or ignore them. but john kerry's road back is a reminder of how arbitrary this game really is. all right, that does it for "the cycle." karen finney, you're in for martin bashir and it's all yours. >> all right. it's wednesday, december 26th. we hope you're having a wonderful holiday because the president's is about to end. boehner and the boys? what's the rush? ♪ >> first of all, we want to say merry christmas. >> president obama is cutting short his christmas break with the fiscal cliff looming large. >> the fiscal cliff gets closer. congress now has six days left to make a deal. >> aloha, hawaii. >> to my republican coll

"she's exactly what we need around here." and recent polling shows mrs. obama beating senator mark kirk of illinois by double digits in a hypothetical match-up. her husband's adviser david axelrod is warning michelle obama fans not to get their hopes up. >> i don't think michelle has any desire to be a politician. she'll find ways to make contributions, i'm sure. but the last thing i think she would do is run for public office. >> of course there are a number of ways for the first lady to make her mark after her husband finishes his second term. as samuel l. jackson tells "newsweek," michelle is superwoman.
